This module introduces the four layers of the TCP/IP internetworking module which includes applications, transport protocols, internetworking protocols and network access. Laboratory sessions will give extensive experience working with each of these layers and configuring network devices. The module will use the Cisco CCNA exploration Network Fundamentals course which is the first of four Cisco courses that can be used to obtain a Cisco CCNA qualification.
The aim of this module is to introduce students to basic IP networks exemplified through the TCP/IP and OSI models. Students will take CCNA 1 as part of this module.
After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:
1. Configure network devices with appropriate settings
2. Design IP sub-networks
3. Propose, and describe, suitable protocols for use with networked applications.
4. Explain the principles of Ethernet and IP networking
. Client/server communication and intermediary network devices
. The OSI and TCP/IP networking models
. Network Access (TCP/IP Access Layer)
. Ethernet and ARP
. Network layer
. IP addressing
. Subnetting IP Networks
. Transport layer
. Application layer functionality and protocols
. Building, configuring and testing a network
The students will receive all the lecture and class material for CE155 through Moodle and listen again. The learning will be further supported by alignment with work within the company and webinars. It is possible that local students will opt to attend lectures and classes for students taking the parallel on-campus module CE155.
The above list is indicative of the essential reading for the course. The library makes provision for all reading list items, with digital provision where possible, and these resources are shared between students. Further reading can be obtained from this module's reading list.

be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements,
industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist
of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
